I’d read this before so was delighted when my friend chose it for our book club selection this month. This story is set in a charming charming village in Greece and brings together five characters from different countries and different backgrounds through a tragedy-they witness a pleasure boat catching on fire. These five spend that tragic day together at a restaurant atop a hill and it forms a bond between them. Like in Binchy’s other stories thereare characters with sad backstories and the characters all have very real flaws.
I’d love to write more, but I finished this a week ago and what else can I say? It’s a captivating story, she weaves the characters’ stories together well, Greece must be absolutely beautiful and one of the main characters is somewhat unlikable.
